Xavier Interfaith Project & related Part-time Paid Work


Interfaith Project:
Xavier University is looking for 10 young Muslim professionals (ages 21-30+) to come together with other faith professionals (10 Jewish and 10 Christian) for 3 sessions

The first of these sessions is going to be held at Xavier on 8/21 and is going to be a study on the value and importance of lifelong study in these three traditions. In the following three sessions (Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 20) we'll be studying on the environment, community responsibility and building a life (dating, married, having kids). These sessions will be at 3 different locations that represent these 3 religions.

Part-time Paid Interfaith Project Work:
Xavier University with the Brueggeman Center is looking for someone in the Muslim Community to work with the Interfaith Project coordinators (Jordy Cohen and Judie Kuhlman) for a few hours every week on the www.InterfaithCincy.orgwebsite.

Islamic Center In The News

Every community has a narra tive.  Either that community controls the narrative or the narrative cont rols the community.   Now more than ever the American Muslim community has to take control of the narrative. This can only be achieved if as a community we are building bridges and inroads with media.  Media outlets want to cover stories and do pieces that people are interested in. They want viewers, readers, comments, and discussions.  It is critical that as a community we are more visible and more vocal in the media.
 
We have been blessed for wide and positive coverage of the Center.  When there is positive coverage we must all give feedback and acknowledge and appreciate the work of the media. Please take a few minutes to review the media links and give positive feedback where you feel comfortable.
